Welcome to the fifth chapter of JEMS’ Nothing to Lose series revisiting Bruce’s remarkable 1977 tour. For the full history of our obsession with this era and the back story on these “Official Audience Tapes,” please refer to the notes in Vol. One found here:

Installment No. 5 brings Springsteen to New Haven, Connecticut, as the tour settles into its final shows in the northeast, six of which are still to follow. For me, this is a period of near perfection in terms of the caliber of the performances and the sense of urgency that’s palpable in the recordings.

There may be only 13 songs in the set, but Bruce and the band are making every one of them count. My typical listening to material from ’77 has tended to focus on the unique songs, like “Action in the Streets” and “It’s My Life.” But in preparing this show, I was struck by just how good the “standard” songs are. Bruce sings “Spirit in the Night” and “Thunder Road” with every bit as much conviction as he does “Don’t Look Back,” and we all know how special “Backstreets” is every night in ’77. Fresh ears also picked out a lot of distinctive guitar work from Steve and Bruce that I felt I had never noticed before. “We tore it apart and put it together again” indeed.

New Haven is the final “official audience” source in the JEMS Archive. I consider it the best recording of the five, sounding just a bit closer, sharper and with better instrument separation than the previous four. It came to us from a different source than the first four (an insider, not a collector), so it may also be a generation to the good comparitively. But it is incomplete, joined in progress during “Spirit.”

Happily, our pal CB taped the show as well and loaned us his master cassettes. The CB source was previously released by Fanatic; we did a fresh transfer for this release. CB told me he taped from the back of the arena and it sounds like it, but the recording is still clear and fills in what’s missing from the better source to give us the complete New Haven show. Samples provided.

Special thanks yet again to: M and J from JEMS for pulling out our many versions of these DATs and helping make new transfers; to CB, one of “The Original Two” who got the whole Springsteen taping hobby started; the folks on the Stone Pony message board whose thread sparked this series; and to mjk5510 who takes our bits and bobs and gets them all pretty for you.

When the ’77 series returns, we’ll revisit Toronto, Detroit and Toledo, all from fresh master transfers. Until then, enjoy New Haven, and better still, add your thoughts about the show and the recording in the comments.

From or original uploader
I got this tape about 18 months after the concert from a trader in the uk the quailty is good to very good at times.
The version of this on the Genesis database does not have the encores on it, this has both encores and is the full show.

Many many thanks to the trader for sending me a copy & for the taper for taping the show.

I hope you enjoy this show please if you want to upload it to other sites please wait a week or so as i will be uploading these shows to a couple of other torrent sites.
after it has run its course on here

PLEASE NOTE.

This series is from my own personal collection they are NOT SOURCED FROM ANY CDRs / OTHER TORRENT SITES ETC.
They are from recordings that i traded for between 20 – 35 years ago on audio tape as stated above they have all been boxed up for the past 20 or so years.

This is the first time any of them have been Digitally transfered and torrented. All i am doing to the recordings in nero wave editor is inproving the volume ( if low), also equallizing the left and right channel where needed. Removing hiss etc ( If i can ).
Recordings in this series that have a generation linage are the correct linage as to what i was told when i was sent the recordings. Most of the traders i traded with where well known traders so i have no reason to believe they are not the true Linage if i had any doubt to the linage at the time i did not write it down on the tape so all the low generation recordings in this series have a well known and correct linage.

Please do not remaster any of theses If you wish to do remastering of this source find yourself a better quality version and remaster that.
This version is how i remembered hearing it all them years ago and how it sounded when it was recorded the way it should be heard.

Please also buy the bands offical stuff and support them etc.
Thanks to all the Artists for there great music and to all the traders for keeping live music alive.

Comments:  Very clean seed.  Jerry finishes off each set quite colorfully.  Master tape paused between some tracks, first notes clipped on some tracks.  While the lineage was only ‘SBD’ >DAT>CDR, I’m pretty sure this is from a master cassette given the tape flip in d2t05.

* Tape flip w/ drop out @ 05:08.420 removed using SF5.

Thanks to Harry A. for the show!
